Fall…Ohhh…Me! Day 7


Just on the outside of downtown Des Moines, there’s a winding road that takes you through open fields and groves of trees, past several small ponds and in some places skirts along the Des Moines River. It’s a little oasis right in the middle of everything.

Whenever I’m needing a change of pace for my drive to or from work, this is a favorite alternative. It slows me down and for a few moments I can forget about the hustle and bustle and just breathe. It’s also a favorite place of mine to bring my camera. Here I feel like I can take my time and just let the scenes appear. The different landscapes are perfect for learning how to photography light in it’s varying phases.

I happened upon this moment on my way into work one morning. Truth be told, I really wasn’t paying attention to anything around me (except the road, of course). I had a heavy heart and lot on my mind when I came around the curve that opens up to this little pond. Praying for some peace in a particular area of my life, this was like a blessing straight from heaven. It was a perfect reminder that while things may feel like they are crashing all around you there is still peace to be found. All you have to do is look up.
